New Glarus really hit a home run with this one...One of the better IPA's I've had...Great looking beer...Rust colored with a puffy white head....Herbal/oily hop nose invites you in and then your buds are assaulted with a great hop bite...citrus style hops dominate but some herbal hoppiness is evident as well...in the background lurks a nice malt/caramel backbone that the spotlight never shines on, but it does it's part as a bit player...kind of like the house band playing for the star entertainer....the hops are the "star" of this one...I think this rates right up there with Hop Devil and really might be better..I love burping up the hop flavor as I drink this....Seek this one out if you like IPA's...

This brew is clear and has a nice deep copper hue. A decent creamy off-white head sits on top and retains fairly well. This has a lovely hop nose reminiscent of pine and rind. Another nicely dry hopped IPA. Now this is an IPA that has great hop characteristics, but also a very solid malt offering. Full bodied and viscous, this beer is still pretty drinkable. A large bitterness quotient hits the buds on first touch and remains long after the drink. The caramel malt tones provide a firm foundation for the heavy hop load of this brew. Very nice grapefruit rind, citrus, herbalness and pine tones dance about the tongue and make this a very pleasurable drinking experience.
